The background was horrible in this shot- lots of rubbish and debris as it was close to the other side of the bank at low tide. But what stood out was the backlighting from the setting sun hitting its wings each time it jumped to strike for fish. Using spot metering, I was able to get the effect by dialing in -1.7EV to severely UE the shot- which solved the cluttered ungainly bg issue. I sometimes use backlighting to my advantage when the situation calls. Hope this answers your question. Sorry to take so long to reply. I am coming over to Auckland (my home) sometime in March 2012, would be awesome to catch up. Planning to spend some time with the Gannets at Muriwai!

Have a great weekend!
